Makeesha's sketch challenge # 14

It has been sooo long since I have done one of Makeesha's challenges, and as soon as I spied this sketch I thought I have to make a card! I love the layout and anyone that knows me or follows my blog will know I love butterfly's!! he he. I love the parisian breeze specialty DSP. Kraft, baja breeze and chocolate chip go fantastic together!! I will need to stock up on this DSP before the mini finishes at the end of Nov! I have used great friend stamp set, kraft taffeta ribbon and chocolate chip corduroy buttons to finish off my card. I have used my versa mark pad to stamp the branch on the kraft cardstock since we don't have a kraft stamp pad. Check out the other entries and the samples from Makeesha and her design team here!! Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend. I have been working on some calender pages that I have to hand in on Monday night so check back soon to have a look at them!!

Mojo Monday # 107

Its amazing how much I have missed blogging!! I have been away for 9 days and I didn't take any stamping supplies with me and I thought it wouldn't matter but I was sooo wrong! We got home at 6pm last night and the first thing I did when the kids were in bed was go straight into my craft room and have a wee play. I haven't had the time to do a mojo Monday sketch for ages and it felt great to not have to think what layout to use! he he. I have used outlaw DSP out of last years catty that were in my huge scrap box. I love these papers, love the colours and the designs and I never have any masculine cards made up. I went to take pictures last night to put on my very neglected blog but surprise surprise the batteries were flat. Don't you hate it when that Go check out the other fantastic entries for Mojo here! you might need a bit of time to go through them but its worth it!!
Well I must go and finish unpacking:( I hate that part!!
